Abstract

This tudy has highlighted a number of factors affecting contractor's awareness regarding construction waste management to the construction industry. The data in the present study is based on contractors registered with the Construction Industry Development Board of Malaysia. Binary logistic regression analysis is employed for exploring the factors affecting the awareness. Contractor's awareness regarding waste management will tend to be significantly adequate with the increasing values in the factors of having waste management plan, awareness of source reduction of waste minimisation measures, awareness of reusing and recycling of waste materials, sorting waste materials, perception on harmfulness of construction waste to the human health and willing to pay more for improved waste collection and disposal services. The findings generated from the study could help the environmental and waste management planners in their decision making for managing construction waste and reducing environmental pollution.
